Gemstone Inspired Weddings: Emeralds

Emerald Gemstone Inspired WeddingsAre you considering gemstone inspired weddings? Consider Emerald as your crown jewel! 

The Perfect Season

One of the beauties of gemstone inspired weddings is that they can easily last through each season, each season bringing it's own twist. Gemstones are generally connected with the earth and many associate that more with a fall wedding. However, being the birthstone for May means that it is basically born for a Spring wedding. For example, the dark of emerald paired with the pastels could make a spectacular contrast!

Center of Attention or Background?

Emerald is such a rich and warm color that it is easily a show stopper. However, it is also a very clean color that depending on your styling it can almost act as a neutral. Imagine replacing the traditional bold black with a deep emerald. Beautiful! In this role, emerald acts as a wonderful backdrop to pop out other colors, be they gemstone inspired or not.

Meaningful Connections

Another reason beyond color that gemstone inspired weddings can be a perfect choice is that gemstones bring a sense of connection, earthiness, and depending on your belief system, magic. Finding out the properties of the gemstone you want to use in your wedding is pretty simple.  It is generally known that Emeralds enhance unconditional love, unity, and friendship. Furthermore, according to it is even known as the "stone of successful love". Could there be a more perfect gemstone for a wedding?  Who wouldn't want a wedding dripping in emeralds, almost as a blessing bringing loyalty and domestic bliss upon the bride and groom as they embark on their marriage?

Fall Wedding Colors

Starting with the more obvious choice, but definitely a fall wedding favorite we have pumpkin! This color can go with a lot of different styles and doesn’t mean you have to have fall leaves and actual pumpkins at your wedding -though that could be cute! This nice and earthy tone will bring in the warmth that goes with the idea of snuggling under a blanket. A good color to match this with if you want to help yourself avoid the thanksgiving dinner feel is navy.

2) Eggplants and Mustard     

Who doesn’t like a good eggplant? This fall wedding color combo is perfect for those bohemian, hipster, shabby chic weddings. This color combo and style also works better for someone who wants to have more flowers at their wedding.

3) Peach and Magenta

This color palette is less of being two colors, and meant to be more that it starts with peach and melds into other rosy colors into the dark magenta, giving you a nice color range. This is a great color combo for the fall because it can mimic a bundle of mixed berries. You can have your bridesmaids in the different colors and even serve things like blueberry pie!J.
